  1. Blood Sister – “Ghost Twin”
    Last month, we premiered “Paralysis” from Blood Sister, the new project of former Night Manager guitarist Ezana Edwards. The San Francisco-based group are releasing their self-titled debut EP later this month and have just shared “Ghost Twin,” which continues the feedback-heavy dissonance of the first track and adds some warbled psych tinges. Listen below. Blood [...]

  2. Sun Kil Moon: “The War On Drugs Can Suck My Fucking Dick”
    Sun Kil Moon’s Mark Kozelek is known for his cantankerous on-stage persona, and recently got in a little trouble after calling a Hopscotch Festival audience “fucking hillbillies,” which he took in stride. Now, it seems as though he said some disparaging remarks about the War On Drugs during his set at last weekend’s Ottawa Folk [...]

  3. Sturgill Simpson Defends His Right To Sing “Goddamn” On Conan
    Last week, underground country singer Sturgill Simpson played Conan and performed his song “Living The Dream,” which contains the lyrics, “I don’t have to do a goddamn thing except sit around and wait to die.” The second half of “goddamn” was censored on television (as it usually is to appease advertisers), but that apparently wasn’t [...]

  4. Perfect Pussy’s Meredith Graves Shares Essay On Andrew W.K., Lana Del Rey, Double Standards, & Authenticity
    Perfect Pussy’s Meredith Graves gave a spoken word performance at Basilica Soundscape this past weekend and read an essay she wrote, which has now been published in full on The Talkhouse. It addresses the idea of authenticity as it relates to musical acts like Andrew W.K. and Lana Del Rey and, more specifically, how a [...]

  5. Preview Dan Rather’s Big Bro-Down With Jack White
    Dan Rather’s next subject for his Big Interview series is Jack White, and now you can see a short preview for it. The entire thing looks pretty amazing. Rather is a total vet and in his short intro he says though he’s interview countless people over the decades he considers White one of the most [...]

  6. Yusuf Islam (Cat Stevens) – “Dying To Live” (Edgar Winter Cover)
    Next month, the newly honored Rock And Roll Hall Of Famer Yusuf Islam, who used to be named Cat Stevens, will release a new LP, his first in five years, called Tell ’Em I’m Gone. He’ll follow that up with an international tour that will, for the first time in 35 years, bring Islam to [...]

  7. Jack U – “Take Ü There” (Feat. Kiesza)
    Jack U is the superstar DJ duo of Diplo and Skrillex, and for a while, they’ve been threatening to unleash some gigantic recordings on the world. Chief among those is “Take Ü There,” a collaboration with the rising house-pop star Kiesza. Diplo has played the track during a few DJ sets, and we’ve posted rips. [...]

  8. Conan Plans George Harrison Tribute Week With Beck, Norah Jones, Dhani Harrison
    It seems September has become the month of George Harrison. In the next couple weeks we’ll witness the release of a massive retrospective box set of Harrison’s post-Beatles solo work, along with a star-studded concert in his honor, and now Conan O’Brien has announced further festivities on his show next week. Starting 9/22 Conan will [...]

  9. Kevin Morby – “All Of My Life” Video
    Today, former Woods and the Barbies member Kevin Morby releases the video for “All Of My Life,” off his forthcoming second solo album, Still Life. The video is a simple, haphazardly retro scene of a live performance on a low-budget TV set, which is actually no more than a backdrop built in a cluttered backyard. [...]

  10. Snoop Dogg Under Fire For Homophobic Instagram Post
    Snoop Dogg has never exactly struck anyone as being the most progressive social thinker — not even when he was making love-everyone reggae as Snoop Lion last year. But someone who’s been famous for a couple of decades should know better than to go full scary-homophobic all over social media. But as Buzzfeed reports, for [...]
